We visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC a few years ago. It was a very emotional experience. Yad Vashem was also a very emotional experience, but was so crowded that it was difficult to see everything I would have liked to have seen. Although it would seem that it was well organized since it was arranged chronologically, there are many little side rooms with interesting exhibits. It was a bit confusing to see things in order in spite of the chronological layout. This was due to the overcrowding. The museum itself is extremely interesting and I highly recommend it. Just try to go when it is not so crowded.

Really opens your eyes to the horrors that man does to man. It was a time of reflection and thought. Really well put together will remain with me for the rest of my life.

Easy to get to. Just at the end of light railway station. Very well organised. It's very moving. The only downside was there was so much of it and it was tiring. You need to pace yourself

This is a very special place. It is a must to see for all nationalities. A look back to the tragic history of the Jewish people, as well as other peoples. It is a reminder of what happens when people do not stand up for their rights. Then one comes to the present and future and shows how Israel came to be and became the special nation it is today.

Yad Vashem exceeded our expectations. The exhibits are incredible and informative. Be prepared to be shocked and a bit emotional as you move through the museum. They do an excellent job of educating people and providing information on all sorts of things that are often not discussed with regard to the Holocaust. I think every visit to Jerusalem must include Yad Vashem.
